Chocolate Flowers, mmmmm….

You get hungry being a florist… Standing on your feet all day with mountains of clippings around your feet. It’s great exercise, but on the particularly busy days when you are working against the clock, one needs a little pick-me-up to power through.

Now I understand a banana would make nutritional sense, but generally an ice cold coke and chocolate wins out. We think about chocolate a lot. Probably too much. Which got us on the topic of chocolate flowers – the real ones and the edible ones.

Welcome to our Willy Wonka mood board of glorious choccy-toned flowers found in nature…and in baking. Drool.

CHOCOLATE ORCHIDS…

With names like ‘Chocolate Drop’ (see Cattleya pictured below) combined with the delicious honey scent of the Sharry Baby, it’s now wonder these moorish orchids make our mood board. How gorgeous are the Alaskan chocolate orchids… Alaska? Orchids? Who would have thought?!
